The Teaching of the Twelve Apostles, better known by its shortened title; "The Didache" is a fascinating look at the 1st century church. This ancient writing comes from a time when the Christian church was newly expanding after Jesus Christ's charge to His followers to go and preach the Gospel. What we find in the Didache is a 1st century Discipleship or training manual. Written and distributed to new churches and converts in pagan and Gentile regions, this amazing work was used to introduce the very fundamentals, practices and Christian lifestyle to those who are hearing the Gospel and joining the church for the first time.
The Didache is a fascinating way to look and see through time how the 1st century church operated. Through this work we can discern traditions in our own church, our own beliefs and the traditions of man and thoroughly compare them to the ways Christians lived and worshiped as taught by the very Apostles of Christ themselves.
